The film includes footage of a crowd of several dozen adults and children carrying placards and picketing the Towne Cinema (919 Granville Street) where Caligula was being shown, a spokesperson for the organization United Citizens for Integrity explaining their reasons for protest, and a number of heated debates on the street between protestors and bystanders/theatre-goers. Film also includes some general views of Granville Street showing the Towne Cinema and nearby buildings. July, 1981. MI-252

Hi, this was a very interesting and thought provoking video.

I am directing and producing a short fiction film called The Broken Record, about a dystopian future, and I was wondering if it would be okay if some footage from this video could be included in a montage sequence in the film. Please reply to me at, thank you.
